If your budget is really small, then go for the Swiftech H20-110 Compact, performs really well and it's 1000 times more reliable than BigWater and all Thermaltake water stuff ... but if you're decided to go water and specially if you want to cool CPU & GPU ... my recommendation is to save a lil bit more of money and start investigating more for the best thermal solution with your budget (for 100-120 pounds you can grab reliable mid-high components to cool in a right way your CPU and videocard), take a look for these two threads:

cheers for the advice - my friend who usually buys things that i end up getting has the thermaltake kit and he cant fault it - he has added another loop in for a GPU block and has ended with a full watercooling setup for about 120 quid. He gets good thermal results and, like me, could have bought X air cooler but wanted that "wow" factor about his case. Im going to price up a self build kit, but, seeing as this will be my first step into the world of watercooling, i would rather go for a cheap pre built kit and gain some experience about water cooling before building my own. If you get me haha.
Thanks for the links to the guides - just what i needed cheers.
